Collection of examples from



The answers to some questions contain some very interesting and instructive basic examples. These are difficult to find in the large number of questions on discourse.There are also good examples in resources and showcase.

Therefore I collected them and put them on one page, clearly arranged by time.
The collection may be a help for beginners. :slightly_smiling_face:

UPDATE January 2019

Thanks to the tireless work of some authors, the number of examples on discourse.threejs has grown strongly. Therefore I reorganized the collection. The examples are now organized by year. In the starting year of discourse there are not many, but in 2018 there will be!

A download is now also possible. So you can use the examples locally very well. With Firefox you can also use textures without having to set up a local server.



You can try them out immediately and use Ctrl U to view the code.
The source code contains the links and the author.

In addition, extended examples ar aviable.


These are links to the original pages. Only examples with code on jsfiddle, codepen and my own page are considered to avoid broken links.
